Three of her plays for adults are in New Voices anthologies of short plays, and her children’s play, “Tele-toss: A Moving Experience,” is included in the New Voices Anthology of Short Plays 2020. Her holiday plays, Blue Hair & Rap (2019) and The Sharmyn Show (2021) were performed at Stage Door Repertory Theatre in Anaheim, CA.
